I’m fairly old school when it comes to recipes….I’ve got 4 key indicators of a good recipe:

  1. the final product has to taste good -yes, this is my #1
  2. the ingredients have to provide nutritional benefits to me and my family
  3. the ingredients must be simple to find and the directions easy to follow
  4. easy clean up

This recipe has all of that and more.

  1. All I can say is I wish my blog had taste-o-vision.  This recipe is a go-to for my son and me for breakfast and snacks. The added cinnamon gives the yogurt a depth of flavor that’s a surprise to many.
  2. The main ingredients are packed with health. The strawberries are naturally sweet, but low in sugar (only 7 grams per cup) and provide the perfect combo of essential nutrients, dietary fiber and health-promoting phytochemicals.  In fact, there’s only 45 calories in 8 strawberries-it’s safe to say I consumed about 8 while making this recipe. Yes, the honey adds sugar, but you can decide how much or how little you’d like to add, if any. 0404161144_HDR
  3.  I had all of the ingredients in my house!  If I didn’t, I could find them easily at the grocery store and could purchase them at a reasonable cost.

4. One bowl. One spoon. Need I say more?

    California Strawberries are the favorite fruit at our house. We like them in pies, cobblers and just plain (well, sometimes with a little Reddi Wip)

  13. Amber Van Sweden

    As a California native, strawberries have always been a garden staple from the time I was little until I was grown and moved out on my own. Currently I have strawberries that live both in the ground and in post. Both are doing really well. Strawberries are one of my favorite easy to grow foods. Did you know the leaves keep the seeds from upsetting your tummy? They’re completely edible!

    Lately I have been adding strawberries into my diet. Making smoothies on a daily basis with them and just add some veggie, usually kale or collard greens. They really give a sweet yummy taste. I also just eat them plain. Very refreshing cold during the summer time.

    I never gave much thought to using strawberries in recipes like the wraps or a salad. I’ll give it a try this summer. You can never eat too many strawberries!
